Comment Re: Finally, the gloves will come off! (Score 1) 1011

They should not get to say "you can't have health care bacause you are a woman", "you can't have cake because you are gay", or "you can't use twitter bacause you are a biggot", but the cake shop, Hobby Lobby, and Twitter have every right to kick you out for harassing other customers.

Comment Re:When will a phone be out that has this? (Score 1) 70

I stumbled on my original first gen iPhone last week. It's so nice and small. Fits in my hand great. Disappears in my pocket. Almost makes me wish I could get a flagship smartphone with a screen that small (surely I would feel differently if I actually powered it on). Sadly I couldn't find an old 30 pin cable to power it up and see if it still works.

Comment srm? (Score 1) 569

Have any Slashdotters had any experience with BleachBit? Specifically, have you used it for erasing "yoga emails" or "bridesmaids emails?"

No, srm works fine for deleting things locally. As for email, secure erasure wouldn't help much; it's stored by Google so the NSA already has it.

Comment What does this run on? (Score 1) 125

I can't imagine they have hundreds of PS3s sitting in a datacenter to run this service. If this is running on an emulator on Xeons on in a datacenter, why don't they just sell emulated PS3 games to run directly on Windows and/or the PS4? I suppose they could have a datacenter full of rackmount Cell boxes which would be a little more interesting.

1. Digital audio means DRM audio

iTunes and later the Amazon MP3 store made DRM free audio a standard for audio you buy. This cat isn't going back in the bag. If you are whining that it's gettting harder to rip DRM from Spotify, etc. (music that you rent) then screw off, you're stealing and it's nobody's problem but your own.

2. Wireless headphones and speakers are fine, not great.

Wires are fine, not great. Shitty amps in phones are fine, not great. Bluetooth is great, your shitty $12 rig notwithstanding.

3. Dongles are stupid, especially when they require other dongles.

See 3, and use bluetooth.

4. Ditching a deeply established standard will disproportionately impact accessibility.

So will ditching DB-9 and floppy disks. Boo-hoo.

5. Making Android and iPhone headphones incompatible is incredibly arrogant and stupid.

You actually have a point here. MicroUSB and Lightning should be ditched in favor of USB-C. Yesterday.

6. No one is asking for this.
